It is the mission of the Department of Pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine to promote diversity, equity and inclusion among students, trainees, faculty and staff as a prerequisite in advancing innovation and excellence in education, research and patient-centered care. We embrace the spectrum of human diversity that is inclusive but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity, disability and socioeconomic status. We affirm the essential dignity and value of every individual, their rights to safety and health and their ability to act on these rights in an environment free of intolerance, violence and discrimination. We strive to foster and maintain an anti-racist culture within our institution. The Department of Pediatrics must uphold these rights and create an environment where individuals can thrive.
